I was informed this morning that the ARIA Top 100 EOY listings will be out on Thursday of this week (13th of Jan.)
None of the ARIA links seem to be working for me
It appears they were up for less than 12 hours before being removed... anyway here's an archive of it until ARIA re-enables it: https://web.archive.org/web/20220111135056/https://www.aria.com.au/charts/2021/singles-chart
The EOY ARIA reports are supposed to be revealed on Thursday the 13th, 2022, so someone must have posted them a day earlier, and then took them down later today.
I've added the ARIA Top Singles of 2021 list to my site.

Hear all the tracks here - https://www.top100singles.net/2022/01/aria-top-singles-of-2021.html#show

47 songs from 2021… right…
I counted even less, Naters - just 41. And only 14% of the chart features Aussie singles.

There are now 20 singles that have made three or more ARIA EOY charts, with Perfect becoming the first to achieve the feat fives times. :O

As of 9:10AM this morning, the ARIA 2021 EOY charts are available.

As of 9:10AM this morning, the ARIA 2021 EOY charts are available.

I'll see one better, only 31 2021 tracks in there and that's being lenient on the technically credited "WITHOUT YOU" remix, and 5 of them are just remakes.

That being said, I suspect "Woman" would've made the cut if our charts actually functioned correctly, though so would "The Thrill", and that would call to question what proper hits even are.
On a similar note to Hijinx's post, there are only 23 albums released in 2021 within the Top 100 for the past year. While there are 21 from 2020 and 12 from 2019 and 8 issued in 2018. Also 43 of the albums have been on the EOY charts for 2021, 2020 and 2019.
Here's all the Top 20 singles that entered the ARIA Top 100 between November, 2020 and October, 2021 but didn't make the 2021 EOY list...

I think the biggest shame about the albums list is how much arbitrary landfill it's got. Like, does ARIA even question the fact that a random live Coldplay album is supposedly one of the biggest albums of the year, or how Lewis Capaldi's 3 year old album is the 31st biggest album of 2021 because people liked 4 songs on it back in 2019. I'd at least like some way of knowing what songs count to what albums because as it stands, you can't parse anything from it.
Since I made these 2 tables last year, I'm updating them

These are the positions of the songs on the Australian artist singles EOY over the years. For years where the song didn't chart, I've put '●' if the song existed and '-' if it was before its release.

There are only 8 songs released in 2021 I believe My Happiness' giant climb is somewhat because ARIA weren't tracking it properly until mid-2020, but it also has genuinely climbed a lot (it was almost never in the Spotify weekly top 200 until mid-2020, but has been there almost every week since September 2020). These are the songs from last year's EOY that did not remain:

----------8Bad ChildTones and I
---------1015Exit SignHilltop Hoods Feat. Illy & Ecca Vandal
----------17Standing With YouGuy Sebastian
---------24GermanNo Money Enterprise
---------28Heavy HeartedThe Jungle Giants
---113252817161835God Loves You When You're Dancing EP / RiptideVance Joy

----------46DivaThe Kid LAROI Feat. Lil Tecca
--------47Slow Dancing In The DarkJoji
----------48EnergyStace Cadet & KLP
---------1249Good LordBirds Of Tokyo

Riptide is obviously due to ARIA not tracking it (it's #8 on Spotify's equivalent EOY and does even better on Apple Music), and similarly, it's safe to say Run To Paradise (#20 by Spotify) is missing, as is Walking On A Dream (it's on the ARIA dance EOY, 1 spot ahead of The Difference, but somehow only being tracked there). To Her Door, Down Under (the original), Flame Trees, Eshays and Eagle Rock also appear on Spotify's EOY but not necessarily high enough to know if they should be in the ARIA list or not.

And here's the same for the dance singles EOY (which was a top 100 in 2015-2019 and a top 50 before and after):

Heat Waves 'should' have made it last year but ARIA only decided to call it a dance song in February 2021. Memories is partly because of its 2021 remix, but it's a strange case because neither version has ever been in the weekly Spotify chart - I can only assume they're both doing enough numbers below #200 to be there combined. Just Dance was #1 of 2008 but an extra column for just that would take too much space These are the ones that have gone:

Lewis Capaldi's album is sitting at #29 on this week's Spotify albums chart. Claiming that it's high on the 2021 EOY chart just because people liked 4 songs of it in 2019 is wrong then. People are still streaming the album in 2022.

As for Coldplay's live album, it's ridiculous to see it chart well week after week as streams probably come from studio versions of their hits. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Warner requested it to chart. They probably prefer seeing one album of them constantly chart in the Top 100 rather than all of Coldplay's albums missing the Top 100.

The real flaw in the albums chart is the 2 track rule which really prevent fresh releases from staying high after the first big week. That's why such old releases like Divide or 1989 keep charting ridiculously high for so many weeks.
That's not my point. My point is that the ARIA position, much like that Spotify position, is 95% garnered by 4 songs but the chart longevity creates the illusion of an album that's listened to all the way through (which to some extent it is, but it's greatly exaggerated). I'd argue Divide rightly does earn that position from being popular through and through even if a large chunk is 6 tracks of it.
When people were buying an album before the streaming era, did they listen to the entire album?

Point made, but I still think fundamentally you have to jump through a lot of logic hoops to make sense of the album chart and the unspoken arbitrary assignment of tracks (which has been prone to shift without warning) is a huge hurdle that makes the initial standings (outside of week to week movement) arbitrary.
